After a long stressful day there is nothing nicer than coming home, kicking off your shoes and relaxing for the evening. Whether you’re sitting in front of the TV watching X-Factor or snuggled up with a good book, a warm, cosy and comfortable living space is a must to unwind from the stresses of the day.
Last week the weather here was fabulous. Glorious sunshine, high temperatures and not a cloud in the sky. But this is Ireland! So after 4 days sunshine, rain must follow! It’s often the case in this country that we only get to look out at summer, so we should at least have somewhere nice to sit and let the outside in.
I just love the colours in this room and the geometric design on the coffee tables mixed with the striped fabric and round window all seamlessly work together and give a really fresh feel to the space.
Here in Ireland one of the most popular ways to add space to your home is by converting the attic. Attic conversions make great use of unused existing space and are generally a lot less costly than adding on an extension.
Hi there! I’m Jenn and I’m a writer for Design Shuffle, a social media website that tracks the top interior design ideas and trends from across the globe and features stunning inspiration! I’ve been writing about home decor for more than a decade and I get giddy over fabulous rooms, beautiful light fixtures, antiques, and more. Every day I start with a strong cup of coffee and a few of my favourite design blogs, like Emerald Interior Design, and when I found out I’d be guest posting here today I was so excited. Thanks for having me Karen!
Between the weather and the economy we have more than our fair share of grey in this country! But grey doesn’t have to be the colour of doom and gloom. In fact soft tones of grey teamed with strong vibrant colours is one of my favourite colour combinations at the moment.
